The Entry

I love an Entry Hall. It sounds so "English Manor House" to me. "The Entry"... In reality we all have one whether our home is large or small, grand estate or intimate cottage. If you have a front door...then you have an "entry". One thing I remember hearing is that it always needs a mirror. You know, a place to check to see if you are "presentable" to whomever it is that's arriving. Hair in place, no broccoli in your teeth, try to eliminate the scary factor so the UPS guy will be sure and show up next time.

So here are some photos of mine. If you've been with me a while you've seen it before, but just for the fun of it, pretend it's new! Well, I DO like to keep the faux flowers current, I'm just about to break out the sunflowers and Blackeyed Susan's, just been too busy painting furniture to brave the storage room boxes.

The crossroads, you can go three different directions.


Straight ahead is the Living Room

(please ignore the mantle, I'm still tweaking it) 



Hallway to kitchen with my sweet little sideboard.


 is hosting a new monthly series of parties,
Room By Room.
Be sure and go by and join in.
And Metamorphosis Monday,
 because something's always changing around here.

  4. Your home is beautiful and your entry is so nice and large. We live in a split entry house with an entry which is 3 feet by 6 feet - stairs up and down, very little room, has a mirror (antique) and small vintage side table with a lamp, some decor and ugly flooring. Therefore no pictures!! :-) You look like you have lots of room to accomodate a lot of guests. It's very beautiful and I love the white painted furniture! ~ Pamela

  18. Beautiful!! I love your vignettes, and how they contribute to the romantic feeling of your house as a whole.

  19. An entry should refect the people residing in the home and should say "welcome". Until someone has the opportunity to walk into your home and feel that "welcome" wrap them up in love, they'll never know the hug they missed.

    P.S. This makes me miss you so much and the new header shot makes me teary eyed.

  41. I love your comment about the UPS guy. How often do I open the door covered in thread from sewing, silver polish, or dirt from sorting through thrifting finds. It's a wonder anyone ever rings my bell more than once.

    Love your house and can't wait to see more.

    Happy to have found your lovely blog through White Wednesday.
